Here is what customers say about it:
“This stroller is just perfect.. Light weight easy to take in and out of the car, the wheels are durable, Ive been using the stroller since Jan 2012, and i run from 1-5 times a week, and its had no problems.. Theres a small red lever in the front of the front wheel that allows you to adjust the tension, put it up if you want the front wheel to stay straight (great while running) or push it down if you need it to be easy to monuvuer (while just walking).
The little storage atthe bottom cant hold a lot of things tends to sag and touch the ground with a little bit of things..
Their are 4 cup holders.. Two at the top handle and and two on the front tray.. The tray is also a good size and theirs a small compartment at the top..
Also the carseat is easy to take in and iut of car and Place on stroller. Mu daughter would just knock out as soon as she got in it.. And fits perfectly on stroller and lightweight also!!”
“The carseat says it’s for babies up to 30 lbs, which seems great until you notice it’s only good for up to 30 inches, which is around 7 months. The stroller and carseat together worked great. Weight was distributed well, pushed easily on smooth surface. Smooth ride if smooth surface, but no shocks so grassy, gravel, or any non-paved areas are extremely bumpy–including slightly uneven sidewalks. The carseat alone is not very comfy for baby, and sits at a bad angle in the car (but not in the stroller). The stroller alone is VERY uncomfy because of the straps, and it tips back (toward handles) easily due to poor weight distribution. Also heavy and takes up a lot of space in the car. We decided to get a new stroller once she outgrew the carseat because it was so uncomfortable. Looks good, though, and does the job. I think it was totally worth the 215 we paid, especially since we were able to sell it easily.”
“My husband and I love this stroller! It seems many people complain that when they jog, baby’s head jostles too much. You’re not supposed to jog with a baby until they are able to hold their head up. If you adhere to that rule, then the stroller does a wonderful job. It’s a very smooth ride and turns easily. I love the easy fold up and it’s not too heavy or difficult to maneuver when collapsed. I am able to easily fit it in the back of my tiny hatchback car. We tried another model of this stroller in the store (the model that has the speakers built in) and it did not stay closed when collapsed, but this one does as long as you use the latch.
Maybe this is just my car, but if I have the car seat in the back no one can sit in the front passenger seat because we have to fully shift the seat up right in order to make room for the car seat. This issue is better in my husband’s car, which is slightly bigger than mine. I’m sure that if you have an SUV or a luxury sedan it wouldn’t be a problem. But if we travel anywhere as a family, we have to take my husband’s car.
I wish the fabric that shades the stroller and the car seat were a little more breathable, or had more mesh to it. Took my baby for a walk and lowered both shades and he nearly baked inside. We got a little mesh canopy for the car seat that resolved this for us (Got it at Target! IT’s wonderful- it’s mesh with a UV protector overlay that you can un/zip depending on the heat. Stores in this convenient little pouch.)
Last- I wish this model had speakers like the other ones! But I’ll take this more functional stroller over the model with speakers any day!”
“We bought this travel system before our daughter was born and it has been perfect for us! We’ve had her in the seat and in the stroller from day one with no problems!
Pros: We live on 80 acres of land and this stroller goes everywhere! Down our trails, around our ponds, fields, dirt, rocks, mud…you name it! We also have an apartment in the city with brick sidewalks and potholes. Adapts perfectly in both places.
It maneuvers like a dream!! I can open and hold a door with one hand and guide the stroller in with the other hand. Looove that I don’t require help or the aide of automatic doors.
The carrier snaps into the stroller easily with one hand. It has a large area underneath for storage which is fairly accessible, even when the seat is reclined.
It folds up very easily, and while it is pretty bulky (comes with the territory when you buy an all-terrain stroller) it still fits easily in the trunk of my Jetta.
The carrier is pretty basic, but its comfy and snaps easily into its base. I’ve never had any trouble with the strap adjustments. When they do get twisted (which has happened once or twice this past year) or when I have to remove and wash the cover, I have no trouble re-threading them.
Cons: There is almost no padding in the stroller seat. This can be remedied with a seat cushion. The stroller seat back does not sit straight up. And the size makes it a bit of a pain to travel with, but it’s totally worth it. Because it’ll take you anywhere you want to go.”
